Buttons For Eyes

Despite my friends’ warnings that the film is creepy, I’ve been wanting to watch Coraline since it came out, and finally found time for it last night.

The mood reminded me of Pan’s Labyrinth — I knew that something bad was bound to happen to the adventurous young heroine, but the fantasy still held a certain charm.

At the same time, this is not a movie I would recommend for impressionable children. It’s a pretty creepy tale masquerading as a typical animated feature. Coraline doesn’t consist of bloody zombie spooks like typical scary movies; the theme of being trapped against one’s will in a too-good-to-be-true Matrix-like kind of place has an altogether more profound psychological affect.

I noticed with delight that Coraline had the same turquoise nail polish that I’m wearing. I really loved the dress that the Other Mother wore, and Teri Hatcher’s voice acting impressed me as well.
